“As far back as I can remember, I always wanted to be a gangster. To me that was better than being president of the United States. To be a gangster was to own the world.”
We’ve got a doozey for you to close our this year’s film series, so come on down to the pier this Tuesday and ring out the end of Summer with Martin Scorsese’s mob classic, GOODFELLAS. Based on Nicholas Pileggi’s bestselling chronicle of the rise and fall of Lucchese crime-family associate Henry Hill, the film features a who’s-who of wise-guy stars including Robert De Niro, Joe Pesce, Ray Liotta, Paul Sorvino, and a pre-SOPRANOS Lorraine Bracco. Widely considered one of the greatest films of all times, GOODFELLAS received six Oscar nominations, with Joe Pesci bringing home Best Supporting Actor for his career-defining role as Tommy De Vito.
GOODFELLAS is being brought to you this Tuesday by by THE O’CONNELL ORGANIZATION and HOMETOWN BBQ. The goodfellas at HOMETOWN will be at the pier selling smoked Italian sausage with peppers, onions, and provolone on a hero with chips ($9) and lemonade. And as always, STEVE’S KEY LIME will stay open across the parking lot selling their pies, tarts, swingles, and limeade. See you at the pier!
